Getting Over A Break Up

When I love, I love hard. When I believe in something or someone, it's all or nothing. I've always had this mentality that my Plan B is to make sure that Plan A works. I think that's why it's hard for me to deal with disappointment.

Having a goal oriented mindset is amazing. It makes you believe that your dreams are within reach. Yet, what happens when you've been working towards a goal for years and haven't seen progress? How do you continue in a relationship that you realize isn't working? What happens when you act on faith, research, plan, then execute and have nothing to show for it?

Do you know when to call it quits?

As a goal getter, it's important to know that you cannot do everything. That doesn't mean that you're not capable of whatever you put your mind to, it means that you will burn yourself out trying to be the jack of all trades. You'll never be everything to everyone and you'll drive yourself into a state of frustration by constantly trying to change who you are to meet someone's perception of you.

It's okay to give up. (Gasp!) As long as you understand what was not working and make the effort to change, everything will work out in the long run. Change your process and modify your vision. Everything is not what it seems and it's okay to be honest with yourself when you realize that something is off.

When a business opportunity doesn't come through, your plans don't work out, or a relationship comes to an end, don't beat yourself up for what didn't happen. You don't owe anyone an explanation. Take a deep breath and know that each day presents a new set opportunities.There's so much more in store if you would only realize that God has your future in His hands. Be mature enough to learn from what did and make room for better now that you know better.
